PNY Elite 128GB (Rugged Card)
All microSD cards are rugged and durable, but PNY puts more focus on that with each SD card they sell. Which is why we'll recommend this Elite 128GB card.
This is a decent middle ground too, as it's very affordable. In fact, 128GB is one of the most popular configurations, and everyone offers this size at competitive pricing. And while the SanDisk Ultra 128GB is pretty cheap, the PNY Elite delivers slightly better performance for only a couple bucks more.
PNY Elite microSD cards use a "4-Proof technology". Being temperature, water, shock (drop) and magnet proof. They're built to last and come with a limited lifetime warranty. A perfect match for the water-resistant Note 9.
